Crack Traverse

V4-5, Boulder,  Avg: 2.5 from 2 votes
FA: unknown
New Mexico > Jemez Mountains… > Ponderosa Bould… > Pond > Warm-up Boulder

Description

Use pads or spotters if short to reach the crack from the edge of the pile of rocks. Difficult moves with a lack of feet lead up and right along the seam. Either throw for the lip a couple of moves in (slightly easier) or follow the crack out around the blunt arete and onto the slab for the full send.

Location

Starts off the left side of the pile of rocks to the left of the obvious slab.

Protection

Pads and spotters.
